Wait WHAT? Six years after Casey Anthony was acquitted of first degree murder in the death of her daughter, 2, the presiding judge of her trial has said that Casey may have actually killed her! Apparently the judge thinks she did it by ‘accident,’ but nonetheless, the internet is completely freaking out over the new development!
This is so wild! Former judge Belvin Perry Jr., the man who presided over Casey Anthony’s, 30, murder trial back in 2011 shockingly revealed in a new interview that the Orlando resident MAY have killed her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee in 2008 — even though she was acquitted of first degree murder. Talking with the Orlando Sentinel, Belvin, who has since retired as a judge and joined a private law firm in 2014, said he believes it’s possible that Casey accidentally gave her daughter too much chloroform in an attempt to put her to sleep.
“There was a possibility that she may have utilized that to keep the baby quiet … and just used too much of it, and the baby died,” he told the newspaper in an interview published on Thursday, March 2. And we’re not the only ones totally blown away by what Belvin had to say. Check out some of our favorite tweets on the subject below:

Casey Anthony may have gave her child too much Chloroform. Out of curiosity, what is the proper dose of Chloroform to give to your child?

Every single time I see Casey Anthony’s name, I get pissed off. It was no “accident” she killed her baby & got away with it. Simple as that

The former judge also said that while he found no fault in the jury’s acquittal of Casey, evidence presented during the trial did show that she did internet searches about how to use chloroform as a sedative, thus he thinks there was ENOUGH evidence to file a murder charge against Casey. “The question was asked, ‘Was there sufficient evidence to submit the case to the jury on the theory of murder in the first degree?’” Belvin said. “The answer to that question is yes.”
On top of that, a scientist also reported finding chloroform in the trunk of her car, where prosecutors said Casey likely put Caylee’s body temporarily. However, in the end, authorities were unable to determine a cause of death after the child’s remains were found five months after she was reported missing. Belvin made sure to stress though that his theory about what happened to Caylee is just ONE possible explanation. “As I’ve expressed, the only person that really knows what happened was Casey,” he said.
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do YOU think Casey killed little Caylee?
